    Clickable links---test

    I received this information which I copied from my email reader and am pasting it here::

    It happens because the Web site does not always surround URLs with the
    HTML that makes them clickable.

    On this page they are, because each one is contained in an HTML "anchor"

    But on this page the URL is not contained in an anchor. It's simply
    treated as ordinary text, and so is not clickable.

    Maybe the way the original message was submitted (Web vs. email, HTML
    vs. plain text) makes a difference?

    Apparently some browsers recognize an URL and make it clickable
    regardless, but both IE and Firefox leave that decision in the hands of
    the Web site designer."


    To test this I am pasting in a URL to the posting directly on the website using Firefox:


    Now I am going to type in the same URL:


    I will also send the same links from my email programs.
